I am trying to configure the View Transfer repository.
The install of the transfer server went fine, added it to View Admin
Went from Pending state to No Repository configured....
So i put TS in maintenance mode and go to configure repository with no luck.
I keep on receiving message: Error: 20507 - Problem verifying image repository: No transfer server to verify repository information.
I have tried Local drive
tried even giving Everyone group full rights. Nothing. I took the transfer server out of maintenance mode and it went back to no repository state so it looks ok. I can't find any kb on this, any thoughts.
It's been a long time since I set up a transfer server but I don't think you need to put the transfer server in maintenance mode when adding a repository - that's probably the cause of your problem. When adding one, it will be checked with an active transfer server to make sure it's valid - if they are all in maintenance mode there's nothing to perform the check.
That was my impression of the error message as well, but if I try to add the repository while it is not in maintenance mode a big old red message is stated at the top of the repository screen.
"The settings for the Transfer Server repository cannot be edited until all the Transfer Servers are placed in maintenance mode."
My mistake, as I said - it's been a while! Have you checked the log files on the connection server and transfer immediately leading up to this error? The code definitely means it can't talk to the TS.
